You can put the path the the picture in the <img> tag.

For example, my page is in the home directory of the webpage, but my picture is in the images folder, the tag would look like this



You can go in as many directories as you want.

I think you can also use:
Code:
<img src="../somefolder/someimage"
The tree for that example is like this:
Code:
somebasefolder
        |
        --somefolder
        |        |
        |        --someimage.jpg
        |
        --folderofhtml
                |
                --the html file you're using.html
The "../" means go back one folder. Test it to make sure, but I think that works.
